Peaceful parenting

Getting excited for the release of my third parenting book 'The Gentle Parent: Positive, Practical, Effective Discipline' due out in November! This poem is part of the foreword. <3 ~L.R.Knost

Speak quietly to be heard <3

Discipline vs. Punishment <3 ~ L.R.Knost

Being a peaceful parent begins with making peace with our past, our hurts, our own unmet needs so we can fully grow up into healthy adults ourselves and then raise our children into the peaceful, healthy adults we want them to be. <3 L.R.Knost

"It's not our job to toughen our children up to face a cruel and heartless world. It's our job to raise children who will make the world a little less cruel and heartless." ~L.R.Knost, author 'Two Thousand Kisses a Day' and 'Whispers Through Time'

"A peaceful response comes from a peaceful heart" <3 L.R.Knost 'The Gentle Parent: Positive, Practical, Effective Discipline'


10 Steps to Positive Discipline

Something for me to remember, especially these days when my patience is under evaluation by lively performances, otherwise known as tantrums. 

1. Know your child.
2. Know what is “Normal.”
3. Adults are accountable as models.
4. Adults must maintain self-control.
5. Adults must be able to see the world from the child’s point of view.
6. Adults must speak clearly and assertively to children.
7. Recognize that discipline is an opportunity to teach, not punish.
8. The adult must be in relationship with the child.
9. Seek solutions not blame.
10. Communication with the intention of love, not fear.
